Average height men and women, Have you ever felt tall?

Well, I'm average height or a little over it (5'6), and there has been times I've been in a room full of women , only to realize I'm the tallest there.

I should not be feeling that tall when I'm average!

Average height of a woman : 5'4
Average height of a man: 5'10
(Wow, these numbers changed slightly... they were different a few years ago but I just recently looked them up).

  • A few times, but most of the time I just feel average. Mostly the times I notice I difference in height is when someone shorter calls me tall. I am 5'10 and that is average in the united states. I often see guys much shorter than me claiming I am tall, and while I do see this as a compliment, I don't feel tall.

    The only times I have really felt tall was when I was dating a girl that was a full foot shorter than me. That made me feel like a freakishly awkward giant at times.

  • im 5'3 and i have felt a little tall before because some of my friends are shorter. but i think the reason why there are so many different (and shorter) heights is because there are so many different people in america coming from all around the world so not everyone matches the average criteria

  • 6'1", but most people my age including me aren't done growing yet so that makes me tall. But I'm so used to it that I don't pay attention to it anymore.

    • Wow.
      Even if you were done growing you'd still be considered tall.
      The average height of a fully adult male is 5'10.

    • Well, yeah, true, but it's not that far from 5'10", that's why I clarified.

  • Well i am tall haha.

  • I'm 5'4.

    I felt tall at my old job. I was the tallest employee until they hired guys. They made me lift all the things and get the stuff off the top shelves. Which is odd because I had to climb only one less shelf than they did to get the stuff - still had to climb lol

    I don't normally feel tall. I am a midget in a land of giants where I live.

  • Yes, especially when after a teacher asked the guys to do a thing and they pretended to not hear it, I was their second choice. It sounded like "A tall guy... *zero sound**teacher points out at me*". Now, in my current class, I'm in the middle, but I'm still taller than the shortest guy in class. 😛💁😂
    Getting into high school made me realise I'm not some kind of giant. 😂

  • No, not really. I'm 5'5 ft and I feel quite small, unless I'm wearing really big stilettos, then I feel like I'm at a great height, which is kind of like cheating.

  • I have felt this, too! It changes depending on where I move to. Like one place in the south I felt tall, but on the east coast I was average, west coast kind of short.
